Nothing prepared me for caring for my wife who was diagnosed with a grade 4 glioblastoma brain tumour . I am happy to share my experience with anyone in a similar unfortunate position.
Hi, this is my first post and not sure if I'm in the right place?! I was diagnosed with a GBM4 in 2012 and underwent radio and chemotherapy which was successful in shrinking the tumour and I was in a state of remission for 18 months. Tumour started growing again this year so chemo started again but isn't affecting the tumour. I had surgery in August to Debulk the lesion and I see my oncologist later today to discuss the treatment plan moving forward. I'm 31 and have a 3 year old daughter. I'm finding that I'm struggling emotionally much more with recovery and getting on this time round and am looking for a little real advice from people who are experiencing a similar situation. That seems a bit of a ramble, sorry! Best wishes to all affected Corinne
